The girl loud rock band hailing from Tokyo, “HANABIE.”, has earlier this month released the digital single GIRL’S TALK on May 10, followed by the music video a day after.

Through the new single along with the music video, the Harajuku-core band HANABIE. showcases a more mature and sophisticated side, reflecting their growth while maintaining their energetic and unique style.

From the musical perspective, we see the band exploring interesting approaches, including Yukinaโ€™s new rap style and Matsuriโ€™s mature vocals, complemented by intricate bass and drum lines from Hettsu and Chika, respectively.

HANABIE. had a lot to say about the new single and shared their own individual comments.

Vocalist Yukina

Weโ€™ve created another song that only we can produce! From the moment I received the initial demo from Matsuri that included the glass sound in the intro, I knew I wanted to create a luxurious and mode ambience song. Iโ€™ve been looking forward to releasing this for a while. Isn’t it a very precious time for people of any age to meet with friends after a long time and reminisce about their past? Itโ€™s nice to have someone to share stories with and I would be happy if HANABIE. can be included in everyone’s โ€œtalksโ€.

Guitarist and vocalist Matsuri

I wanted to gradually show a more mature HANABIE. so tried to express a cool and mature woman even from on the sound end. Itโ€™s a little different from our usual HANABIE. style. Please enjoy a mature HANABIE. along with the music video!!

Bassist Hettsu

The song has a more mature atmosphere than the previous HANABIE. songs! I think itโ€™s very HANABIE. that it starts with a chill glass sound and suddenly speeds up. The bass line from before the chorus to the end of the chorus is my personal favorite, so please check it out! In this song, Matsuri is doing more mature vocals and Yukina is doing a new style rap, so please listen carefully to that part tooโ™ช

Drummer Chika

This song is not only a cute song, but also shows a new aspect of HANABIE. ! Yukina’s rap and Matsuri’s melody are very impressive and catchy! The drum phrases in this song were designed to be cool and mature, but I also kept in mind a sense of speed and a slow and fast patterns. In particular, I thought of a difficult drum phrase for the first melody of the second verse, so I hope that those who have drum experience will try to copy it! In the music video, I tried to give a mature look and there was a new challenge for me, so please check it out!

HANABIE. is on top of their game right now and is currently touring throughout the US and Canada in their headliner tour, and right after that, they’ll proceed to Europe for a month-long tour.
